|John Terpstra, Skin Boat, Art Waves #43|
John Terpstra’s book-length essays about geography & belonging, and about the all too brief lives of his brothers-in-law have given him a following even larger than that he has won with his poetry. When he released another of his eclectic explorations, Skin Boat: Acts of Faith and Other Navigations, Art Waves invited him to come aboard and share his secrets of chart and compass.

|Glenn Macdonald, Musician and Cartographer, Art Waves #135|
Glenn Macdonald, also known as Martin Fields, is a singer song-writer by avocation and a map-maker by vocation. But, surprisingly, he maps water, which is a perfect metaphor for the kind of multi-layered divination he brings to his song lines. Tune in for a fascinating conversation and some meltingly beautiful, live music, including two new songs, heard here for the first time!
